There is a spectrum of findings in ARPKD which are better depicted using high-resolution ultrasound techniques.
Repeat sonographic measurement of the length of the kidneys appears to be a useful parameter to diagnose ARPKD.
Si no existe historia familiar de ARPKD, pero en la ecografia prenatal se evidencian rinones quisticos y aumentados de tamano, se recomienda realizar ecografia fetal de detalle y cariotipo para evaluar la presencia de anomalias cromosomicas u otras anomalias congenitas en el feto [49].
Los hijos de un individuo afectado con ARPKD son todos heterocigotos obligados (portadores) de una mutacion causante de la enfermedad.
Individuals with the recessive form (ARPKD) are affected as newborns or young children, and roughly 30 percent of children with ARPKD die during infancy.

Phenotypic variability in ARPKD patients can be explained by the nature of PKHD1 gene itself; alternative splicing of its 86 exons assembles a variable number of transcripts with the longest being fibrocystin/polyductin.
In addition to nephronophthisis, in ADPKD and ARPKD part of the complexity in molecular diagnosis lies with the plethora of mutations inherited by the patients who belong to different families.
Seven of our 20 cases (35%) were diagnosed as such only retrospectively; 5 were ARPKD (cases 1-5) and 2 were ADPKD (case 6 and 7), demonstrating that PKD is the most important entity in the differential diagnosis of GCK.
The case was initially interpreted as "GCK," but genetic testing of tissues from the newborn and of blood from the parents established the diagnosis of ARPKD.
